If you’ve been loving the 70s trends lately you are going to love these beige wedding ideas today. Think retro vibes, a cool bridal suit and some seriously gorgeous styling. Brought to us by Emma Wilkinson Photography these sensational images showcase impeccable style, with modern flower arrangements, on-trend attire and kick-ass vibes. YES.
I really love the beige, whites, creams and oranges used throughout, so understated yet unique. Elements such as earthenware and wicker really brought the tables to life as did the romantic candles and unique arch cake. The cake mirrored the backdrop, which also featured a contemporary neon sign. Do be sure to check out the fun meal too, not to mention all the beautiful accessories and details.
When shooting at The Old Cow Shed, we wanted to keep the vibes colourful and quirky to suit the venue. After bouncing back and forth ideas, we came up with a slightly 70’s yet bohemian style with the bride wearing a knock out Karen Willis Holmes, Bianca Jagger inspired bridal suit, accessorised with a hat and custom veil- perfect outfit for a dash to the airport, after the ceremony to begin the honeymoon.
When you think of the 70’s, you think of trends such as dried pampas and colours such as orange, brown and purple. Katie wanted the 70’s feel to be subtle in her flowers, so opted to add colour delicately by using coloured dried elements to the floral design and sticking with whites, creams and nude fresh flowers. These brighter and almost neon tones worked really well with the more pastel colours which Abi and Heather used for the stationery and cake. Our florist also added rattan and wicker light shades, along with a flower basket to bring in another dimension.
From the hanging light shades and wicker baskets to the napkins and plates, our stylist and florist had purchased from places such as H&M and Wilkos. These details will hopefully show our audience, what amazing things you can produce for a smaller cost, when putting together a more DIY wedding- the more off the wall, the better!
Heather wanted to create a cake a little different for this shoot, something that a quirky young couple might go for. She drew inspiration from the beautiful arch backdrop supplied by George from Two Eight One, and challenged herself to make it in cake form. She created a small hellebore flower to sit alongside the cake, with a gorgeous selection of dried flowers. This combined the traditional cake artistry of sugar flower work, with a more modern use of dried flowers.
We chose to play on the free spirited, festival atmosphere of the venue with a wedding breakfast of Mcdonalds. This untraditional wedding option, being one for the rule breakers.
At The Old Cow Shed, chickens roam free and the wedding guests get to spend the evening around the camp fire, to later pass out in one of their Shepard huts- bliss!
